From time to time, we come across Jrock bands we have yet to cover, so we have decide each month we shall report back to our readers on our findings. This month it is GAGA, TRiANGLE SONiX and Sally! If you spot any bands we have yet to cover, leave a comment below and we’ll try our best to slot them into the next edition, but for now, sit back and be ready to find your next favourite band.
GAGA was created by former EAT YOU ALIVE bassist Kenji earlier in 2015. Their most recent release is Roraku ( 籠絡) which came out in October this year, and their tracks play with a mixture of heavy screamo with the usual melodic vocals popular with this genre. You can check out their songs on their official YouTube channel.
Formed of five members: vocalist Tohka (十) guitarist Shiori (ex-ISK;M), Kenji is now known as Keso on bass and drummer Rio (ex-T@Planet) this band have already announced their disbandment and their final tour date for February 27, 2016. Each member has left a message to thank and apologise to fans for this news. It’s noteworthy to mention that their mascot was a rooster named Alicia and it even has it’s own twitter account, which often posted images of bento boxes (lunch boxes usually with rice in).
TRiANGLE SONiX, which is stylized as 【TRiANGLE▼SONiX】, is a Visual Jrock band which began in January 2015 with three members, vocalist KEKE, guitarist HIRO and yoshi who are both ex-members of Twins☆. HIRO owns a dog and seems to have similar tendencies as Kenji from Golden bomber in terms getting in the nude and posting photos on twitter.
They are ready to play their first anniversary one-man show on the February 2, 2016. They have yet to officially release a single but have played a couple of tours in Japan so sit tight.
Sally (サリィ。) officially debuted their first single Hakumei Ni Ame (薄命に雨) this month, but has been active since 2014. Fronted by vocalist hack., guitartist KO-JI and bassist Shin, they have been incredibly active with shows. We’ve noticed that hack. who also plays guitar has amazingly huge eyes and we love the outfit he wears in their latest music video. The tracks Sally produces has a hint of Plastic Tree vibes, have a listen to their Natsu no yuki below and let us know what you think.
